How You Can Prevent Cancer

April 19th, 2014 by DoctorZaidi

In order to prevent cancer, first you need to know what causes cancer. Based on my 35-years of clinical experience, I consider the followings as the risk factors for the development of cancer.

• Stress: psychological as well as physical
• Personality type: Control freak and/or highly competitive
• Obesity
• Aging
• Vitamin D deficiency
• Cigarette smoking
• Radiation
• Unhealthy diet: High carbohydrate, high sugar, high saturated fat, artificial sweeteners, high fructose corn syrup, deep-fried foods, most desserts, most commercially bakery products, preservatives, pesticides, growth hormone, GMO ( Genetically Modified Organism) foods, inorganic foods, artificial foods etc.
• Too much exercise
• Constipation
• Excessive sex over the age of 60 (for males)
• Avoiding pregnancy for a long time (for females)
• Oral sex
• Certain drugs such as Estrogen replacement, even bio-identical hormones, too much Testosterone use in people who are not really low in testosterone, sex-performance enhancing drugs such as Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, Insulin for Type 2 diabetics, Interferon, Remicade, Cyclosporine, Prolia, other immunosuppressive drugs etc.

Except for aging, all of the other factors are modifiable. Only you can change these risk factors for yourself. Don’t expect anyone else to do it for you, because they can’t.

Higher Level of Vitamin D Associated with Lower Risk of Developing Type 1 Diabetes

March 30th, 2013 by DoctorZaidi

A recent case-control study analyzed the data from healthy military service members between 2002-2008. Blood samples for 25 OH Vitamin D level of 1000 cases who later developed Type 1 diabetes, showed a clear inverse relationship between the level of vitamin D and risk of developing Type 1 diabetes. A serum 25(OH) D concentration ≥60 nmol/l was associated with a 3.5-fold lower risk of developing Type 1 Diabetes.

Traditional Diet and Exercise Failed to Reduce Heart Attacks , Stroke and Mortality in Type 2 Diabetics: Unexpected Results of a Landmark Trial, Known as Look AHEAD.

October 21st, 2012 by DoctorZaidi

The Action for Health Diabetes (Look AHEAD) study, a trial comparing an intensive lifestyle-intervention program versus the standard diabetes support and education had to be stopped, as it failed to show any improvement in cardiovascular events or death rate. It is interesting to note that previously, the investigators were all excited that the trial would show a reduction in cardiovascular events, as it had shown improvement in cardiovascular risk factors.

The study began in 2001 and was funded by the NIH (National Institute of Health). It enrolled 5145 Type 2 diabetic patients, who were roughly, equally divided into two groups: The intensive lifestyle-intervention arm, which included individual sessions with a nutritionist and/or personal trainer, as well as group sessions and refresher courses versus the control group that received standard diabetes support and education.

Intensive lifestyle-intervention did show an improvement in cardiovascular risk factors, but it did not translate into reduction in cardiovascular morbidity or mortality. In other words, intensive diet and exercise conducted with the help of dietitians and exercise trainers did not make any difference, as far as cardiovascular events are concerned.

It is an excellent study that brings out several points: Current diet and exercise recommendations can improve cardiovascular risk factors, but do not prevent heart attacks, strokes and deaths. Isn’t it time, we reevaluate our so called cardiovascular risk factors? Perhaps we are missing something. One such major factor is stress, which is well known to cause heart attacks and stroke. We don’t even mention stress management when we talk of lifestyle intervention. Interesting, isn’t it? Perhaps our recommendations about diet and exercise are also flawed.

I came to these conclusions about fifteen years ago and developed my own treatment strategy for my Type 2 diabetic patients. It consists of five steps: My own recommendations about diet, exercise, stress management, vitamins/herbs and medications, in that order. The results have been astounding. Heart attack or stroke is a rare event in my Type 2 diabetic patients. When some of my Type 2 diabetic patients get hospitalized for elective surgery, usually some orthopedic surgery, they are shocked to see the kind of food on their tray (like cake, cereal, juice and pancakes) at the hospital. They refuse to eat half of those food items. Sadly, they also see the high charges of the dietitian’s consultation fee on their discharge bill.

I Have discussed my revolutionary, comprehensive and scientific treatment strategy in my book, “Take Charge of Your Diabetes.”

Vitamin D can prevent Shingles

September 26th, 2012 by DoctorZaidi

A recent study shows that Vitamin D can significantly reduce the risk of developing Herpes Zoster, which is also known as Shingles.It makes perfect sense. Herpes Zoster is a viral infection which you develop if your immune system is down.That’s why it is commonly seen in the elderly and those who are on immunosuppressive drugs such as Interferon, Steroids and chemotherapy. Vitamin D boosts up your immune sytem and therefore reduces the risk of developing infections such as Herpes Zoster, flu and common cold.
